This house is in the Carthay Square section of Los Angeles, in the Carthay Square Historic Preservation Overlay Zone. Like many of its neighbors, it was designed in the Tudor Revival style, and the owners have updated the interior while retaining the original facade.

Several museums, including the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and the Petersen Automotive Museum, are within a mile of the property, as is the stretch of Wilshire Boulevard known as the Miracle Mile. Downtown Los Angeles is about 20 minutes away by car.

Size: 2,592 square feet

Price per square foot: $924

Indoors: Steps rise from the street through an English country-inspired front yard dotted with lavender bushes and a small fountain.

The front door opens into a foyer with dark hardwood floors, which continue through the main level. This space flows into a sunny living room with street-facing windows, a fireplace and a smaller, adjoining space used as a den and TV room.

To the right of the entry is a dining room with more street-facing windows. A polished-granite breakfast bar divides the dining space from a kitchen with plenty of cabinet space and new appliances, including a Wolf range.
